The Riverside Inn in Grants Pass, Oregon, has the best location in town, right on the river, immediately downstream from Caveman Bridge. I don't know if there are other hotels/motels in town that are nicer, because this is the only place I would stay. The motel is on a bank above the Rogue River, so each room is like being in a tree house during the summer. With the sliding glass door open, you can hear the sounds of the riffle (rapids) below the bridge. A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. The motel is next to the jet boat office (white water rides on the Rogue) and sort of across the river from the city park. (Cross Caveman Bridge, and then walk under it and the 7th Street bridge, upstream, to reach the park.) For a longer walk, you can walk south through the neighborhoods to the sanitation plant and the sports park, across the pedestrian bridge, back up through the neighborhoods on the south side of the river to Caveman Bridge, and then to the motel. It shouldn't take more than an hour. It's only 4 stars by my rating standards, because the rooms are a little worn and in the 1950s and 60s. They are clean and the desk staff is helpful.
